Self Paced Study

Artificial insemination (AI) is widely used in most domestic and even wild animal species. The reasons for use of AI instead of natural breeding are diverse and different for the various species. As in humans, AI can be used as a tool to increase conception rate in animals that have fertility problems. This is usually performed in companion animals such as horses and dogs, where individuals are important as breeding animals. In these situations, breeding animals are mostly chosen on performance and pedigree instead of breeding soundness. Breeders can go through a lot of effort to produce offspring from a specific dam or sire, irrespective of potential reproductive problems.

This course is not intended to replace practical workshops, but to provide students with a thorough understanding and knowledge of the different applicable practices in artificial insemination across a range of domestic species. Students are encouraged to participate in any practical workshops they can access.
